  • posted a message on [$50 - $350] Modern Zoo Budget Primer
    I'm building up to Zoo both Online and Paper, but am wondering, if leaning towards a bit of burn is discouraged? I know we typically will run Lightning Bolt and Path to Exile, but things like Searing Blaze, and Flame Slash see play in some other decks for spot removal and can keep the pressure up while we keep swinging. I've played red for so long, perhaps its just hard to let go...

    Great thanks, seems I was already somewhat on the right track but had looked at the fastlands instead of the checklands. Smile

  • posted a message on Budget Jund Manabase?
    Hello! I am trying to get back into the game after an eternity out of it, and Modern is where I am trying to land. I am looking to build what I think is some where between an aggressive jund deck, and perhaps gruul zoo, less grindy than the proven jund variant, but not as low on the CMC as Zoo.

    The issue is, I am not seeing any examples of a jund budget manabase, and while I acknowledge the importance of fetches, they arent within the budget.

    Looking to keep this within the realm of an additional $100 or so.

    Having, 4 Stomping Ground, Blood Crypt, Copperline Gorge, Overgrown Tomb, Blackcleave Cliffs, Mana Confluence on the land side, with Ghor-Clan Rampager, Fanatic of Xenagos, Lightning Bolt, Rift Bolt, Hellspark Elemental, Inquisition of Kozilek, Raven's Crime, Cry of Contritions, on the spell side with some other creatures such as Slitherhead, Jund Hackblade, Lotleth Troll.

    Ideally I am looking at running a lot of creatures, with supplemental spell support, and a manabase that supports enough sideboard options to remain flexible while not needing the fetches.

    Possible, or a lost cause and I just need to save up for fetches?

    Apologies if this is in the wrong forum (deck building?)

    Red is my favorite conceptually, and with support from UBG, is enjoyable and variable enough despite the very narrow approach seen in a lot of its mechanics.

    White's my least favorite. I dont like the white weenie archetype, nor the grind out of massive amounts of life gain.
